Clinical Quality Measures

Clinical Quality Measures are measurements that can be used to evaluate the quality of care provided by a medical practice. These measures are used to track patient outcomes, assess the quality of care a practice provides, and compare the quality of different practices. 

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) uses Clinical Quality Measures as part of its quality reporting requirements. This means that practices must report on several different measures each year in order to receive any reimbursement from CMS. 

These measures help patients by providing them with information about their healthcare provider’s performance, which they can use when making decisions about who they want to see or what tests they might want to be performed. These measures also help providers by providing them with valuable feedback on how well they are treating their patients and serving their communities.
